11.16.17 Bee-otch of the Day: the person who made me say #MeToo


Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on Chuck69.com.

Bee-otched For: giving me my #MeToo moment




--

In the past few weeks, many celebrities and politicians have all seen their careers blow up because of sexual encounters.

Harvey Weinstein, Louis C.K., Roy Moore, Kevin Spacey and now Minnesota Senator Al Franken have all been accused of groping and harassing women and men. Some of those people were only teenagers. The people who have made these accusations have all created the hashtag #MeToo, alerting people that they've been sexually harassed or even assaulted.

Well, I have a #MeToo story.

In 2010, my cousin and I used to hang at Mulligan's Bar here in Grand Rapids. During Super Bowl night, I was pulled over for alleged drunk driving and I blew a .06, under the legal limit. So, I decided to avoid drinking from Midnight on when I'm at the bar.

One night a few months later, I was at Mulligan's alone and wondering if my cousin would show up. He didn't. So, I stopped drinking and hung out in the back by the pool tables. Suddenly, this tall black dude asked me "hey man, where's your drink?" "I'm done drinking for the night. I gotta drive home." So, this guy decided to draw me a map of streets to take where there weren't many cops. Then, he asked me to come over to hang out with him at his place. I did, without the suspicion that he was gay.

So anyway, I went over to his apartment and he gave me a beer to drink. He told me that he didn't have cable - only locals - so he put it on his favorite show, Desperate Housewives. Then, he told me that he had a bunch of movies, including straight porn and gay porn. I was like, "so, you're gay?" He said, "well, I'm bi, but I'm mostly towards guys".

Whoo-boy.

As the night lingered on, Desperate Housewives went off and the straight porn was on. During this time, this asshole was pressuring me to sit next to him. I declined. Things were only going to get worse from there on. While watching a scene showing two men having sex with a woman at the same time, the asshole started pleasuring himself and then, he unzipped his pants and started masturbating in front of me. I was sickened. I casually walked out of the living room into his bathroom. I grabbed my shoes and jacket and he was like, "why are you going?" "It's getting late. I'm going home." "Next time you come over, bring some of your pornos, will ya?" I was outta there.

I had a beard at the time, so I shaved it off. Every time I went to Mulligan's and their sister, Billy's Lounge, it seemed that he was there. Thankfully, he didn't recognize me and I avoided him. It was one huge reason why I decided to avoid Easttown bars altogether. My bar life was over since I was now in my 30s and I didn't drink all that much as-is. I even went back to Mulligan's earlier this year because I had a date with a woman I met online. Thankfully, he was nowhere to be seen.

What this asshole did to me was SICK. Not to mention, it made me think differently about gay men. A few years ago, I started attending a church here in GR that accepts the LGBTQ community. Why? Because my family wanted me to be baptized and I didn't want to go to a church that's ultra-conservative. Thankfully, I haven't met any jerks there that resembled said harasser.

The point is, this is why some men HATE gay people. They hate it when women act so cold towards them and then some dude hits them up. Maybe that's why some guys will go to great lengths to harass women. Sometimes in life, when some asshole does crazy shit like the aforementioned douchebag did, ya gotta turn the other cheek and walk away.

Right, Eddie

11.15.17 Bee-otch of the Day: Walmart


Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on Chuck69.com.

Earlier this week, a man named Gary Joe Ahrns released a video that went viral, exposing a Walmart in Celina, OH that was tossing out what he thought was good food.

He went to the back of the store and noticed dozens upon dozens of grocery items all lined up and headed for the dumpster. The items included butter, milk, cakes, hot dogs and cheese. A manager walked out and noticed Ahrns making the video and told him that he didn't know why they were throwing it away, but it was a corporate issue. Another employee told Ahrns to call Walmart corporate and then leave. Needless to say, Ahrns was pissed that the biggest retailer on the planet didn't give away the food or even give it to the employees.

A few days after the video went viral, Walmart corporate did release a statement, stating that the Celina store was without power for 14 hours and have to dump all the food from their coolers as protocol like all grocers do when the power goes out for an extended period of time. However, I do smell something fishy, and it's not coming from their coolers.

One of the items that Ahrns took out of the cart was canned ham. Yes, canned ham that was good until 2020. Now, where I shop, the canned ham is not refrigerated. It's next to the canned tuna, soups and even packages of cooked bacon, which is also not refrigerated.

On my Facebook news feed, one person claimed that they've seen their Sam's Club dump out carts of food before. Dumping food is also something farmers do, especially when food prices bottom out.

You know, it's sad when people support this evil and disgusting chain, thinking that they will save some bucks. In the end, The real losers are their shoppers and the family-owned grocers they've fucked over. Remember their Walmart Express stores they had in tiny towns down south? When those town's family-owned stores closed, so did the Walmart Express stores, turning small towns into food deserts. Last week, I just read about a family-owned grocery store here in Michigan that closed after 60 years in business. The store had a cow head on the front of its building, making it a landmark. Now, because of its closure, people now have to drive 12 miles west for groceries. One of the options, of course is Walmart.

Of course, this is Walmart we're talking about. A chain that's worth billions and yet their employees don't make squat. I agree that if they can't sell the food, they should give it to their underpaid employees. But no! It's all about the almighty dollar. Another good reason why I try to support local when I can. And yes, Meijer is the lesser of the two evils between them and Wally World.

I'll betcha that if they could, Walmart could put their own bowel movements on their shelves instead of real food.

11.14.17 Bee-otch of the Day: Roy Moore


Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on Chuck69.com.

-------

Name: Roy Moore
Age: 70
Occupation: cowboy wannabe
Last Seen: Alabama
Bee-otched For: not giving up




--

Is it me, or does the term "far-right conservative" equate to pedophile?

In the past, we knew that Roy Moore was that asshole judge in Alabama who had a monument to the Ten Commandments in his courtroom. He's known for his anti-LGBT values and for being anti-women's rights.

Now, five women have all stepped forward to claim that the former judge all groped them when Moore was in his 30s and they were only teens. The age of consent in Alabama is 16.

The latest to come forward was Beverly Young Nelson, who claimed that Moore groped her when she was 16 and he was in his 30s. She claimed that Moore grabbed her breasts and tried to force her into his crotch. Moore, on the other hand claimed that he never heard of her in his life.

Since the five women have all come out against Moore, many in the Republican party have all come out to tell Moore to concede from running in next month's special senate election in Alabama. However, Moore has said no, simply because he had been leading in the polls against Democrat Doug Jones, though it is now neck-and-neck. Of course, it's no secret that Alabama is a very far-right state. Hell, there was a radio station in Birmingham that burned Beatles records in the 1960s only because John Lennon said in an interview that they were "bigger than Jesus". (To add insult to injury, Birmingham was one of the very few TV markets in the 1960s that didn't have a station that aired The Ed Sullivan Show, meaning that people there couldn't watch the Fab Four's TV debut in 1964.)

The sad thing is that if Moore gets elected, this will further fuck up the Republican party, creating more divide. Also, it'll show how fucked up Alabamans are. But since a lot of people in that state allegedly all slept with their younger sister, well, it makes perfect sense.

Sometimes, I wish the south could be its own country.

11.13.17 Bee-otch of the Day: Ohio State University


Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on Chuck69.com.

-------

Name: Ohio State University
Age: 147
Occupation: college
Last Seen: Columbus, OH
Bee-otched For: bowing to a sick, sick asshole

In this world where everybody is seeming to say "#MeToo" regarding celebs and politicians, It can be a shame that despite being unpopular, their shows and songs are still being played. After all, somebody right now is watching The Cosby Show or watching "The Usual Suspects".

Or in the case of Ohio State University (and BTW, we have a policy that prohibits us from putting the world "The" in front of "Ohio State University"), they love playing a song that was written and originally performed by a very twisted old man.

When I was watching my Michigan State Spartans football team getting clobbered by OSU on Saturday, the OSU Marching Band lovingly played the 1970s rock classic "Rock and Roll Part 2" in between plays. OK, so it's a familiar rock anthem. It's not really offensive, either; its just a bass, guitar and drums with some guy singing "HEY!" Of course, we've all heard this song at sports arenas and occasionally on classic rock stations.

It's just too bad that the asshole who co-wrote and performed the song is serving a 16-year jail sentence for being a fucking pedophile.

Yep! Paul Francis Gadd, aka Gary Glitter now lives in a jail for sex offenders on the Isle of Wright. He was sentenced in 2015 for molesting two girls under 13 in the 1970s. In 1997, he was busted for downloading thousands of pictures of child pornography on his computer and convicted in 1999, though he was acquitted. He moved to Cambodia and then Vietnam, but was deported from both countries for child molestation.

In 2012, the NFL urged teams to ban "Rock and Roll Part 2", especially since they play several games every year in England.

So, why is OSU still allowing themselves to have a connection to a song from a very sick, deranged man? God only knows. All I can say is I feel bad for anybody who likes that song. Personally, I'd like to see all child molesters rot in jail forever. Since Gary Glitter is 75, chances are that he'll die there.

Maybe OSU and Penn State oughta share a room.

11.9.17 Bee-otch of the Day: Donald Trump


Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday, Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Friday on Chuck69.com.

Name: Donald Trump
Age: 71
Occupation: right-winged jackass
Last Seen: Vietnam
Bee-otched For: one year of making us ask, "why?"

It was one year ago this morning that I was predicting an easy win for Hillary Clinton.

She had been leading in the polls up to Election Day and was the favorable candidate over the flaming Cheeto known as Drumpf. It was 3:30 in the morning when I turned on my phone, prepped breakfast, and headed back to my phone. I turned on the screen and there it was in living color: Drumpf had been elected as the 45th president of the United States.

Let's just say that when I screamed the words "oh my God", I was thankful that my neighbors didn't wake up.

Sadly, I knew this day would come. I was so pissed that instead of typing a Bee-otch of the Day, I simply notified my readers that there weren't any words. I was speechless. Then again, that day would come.

In the end, yes, Hillary Clinton did win the popular vote. but thanks to her reluctance to campaign in the Rust Belt and the sabotage her own party made against Bernie Sanders, she lost despite winning the popular vote by three million votes. Despite the fact that Drumpf won Michigan by only 10,000 votes and other states by slim margins, his win still shocks so many people.

Since winning the election, Drumpf has focused on killing Obamacare, fucking over the middle class with a tax code that favors the wealthy and spending billions on a wall to keep Mexicans out of America. Also, since becoming president, there have been two huge mass shootings and since the NRA is on his side, don't expect him to stop the sale of semi-automatic weapons and bump stocks any time soon.

But there is some good news. In Tuesday's election, Dems won gubernatorial races in New Jersey and Virginia, showing signs that Americans are simply fed up. If the Dems can not fuck up with their DNC SNAFU from last year and the Repukes keep assaulting the middle class, well, this will be a victory for the Dems next year.

One year down, three more to go.... or less.
